We’re taking our 8th graders on a year-end enrichment trip to New York City on June 12-13, 2018. 

Your donation will help us give all our students the opportunity to explore the history, culture, and activities that New York City has to offer. For many of our students, this will be their first time in New York City, and for some, their first time leaving Massachusetts.

Our scholars will take the bus, leaving at dawn on June 12 and returning the evening of June 13. They will visit historical and cultural sites including the Statue of Liberty, Museum of Modern Art, Museum of Natural History, and Central Park. They will gather material for individual end-of-year portfolio presentations.

The trip is being organized by a committee of 8th-grade parents in collaboration with the 8th-grade teachers and with input from the students themselves.
